We had our fourth day out at Breck today – a beautiful, bluebird day with what seemed like 5 million of our closest friends…
Check out the SIA Snow Show going on in Denver, CO, this weekend at the Colorado Convention Center. This is where you can find virtually everyone in the snow sports industry under one roof – from textiles to prints and designs, equipment, networking, and socializing, they have it all.

Last weekend, we rolled up to A-Basin to skiboard (some of us ski, some of us snowboard – this magical word includes both) for the day. The first and only time Steve and I visited Colorado (October 2012), we skiboarded A-Basin; it was great to experience more than one run being open and nice, short lines. Check out the photos from last Sunday on the mountain:
Excited to get out on the mountain this upcoming Saturday – hopping in the car and heading West is such a great feeling.

Headed out to Breckenridge, Colorado, today to have our first pow (powder) day ever. After one run, with goggles freezing and being advised to head indoors due to the initial signs of frostbite, a few of us have been hanging inside the T Bar for the remainder of the day.
Outside, the temperature is an impressive -1F with a “feel” of -25F with the wind and altitude.
Don’t get me wrong – we love shredding…but with the Epic Pass, we know there are always opportunities.
Be safe out there – don’t push it at the beginning of the season! There’s so much yet to come.
Breck knows how to show you a good time regardless of visibility…
Hope everyone got a chance to make it down to the Convention Center to check out the expo today! The two boards pictured were my favorites by High Society Freeride, an Aspen-based “global lifestyle brand aimed to serve those who live a lifestyle of physical expression”. I still have my very first board, which was a High Society Scarlet – so many great memories with that board! Hoping to get my hands on the special-edition Twin board pictured right.
Epic passes have been received, gear has been purchased and organized….. It’s time to shred, friends.
Tis the season for gearing up and going shredding – ski and snowboard season! Hopefully, everyone has their passes ready to rock; if you’re looking to pick up some new gear and want to find some great deals (40-75% off last year’s gear), check out the BEWI Ski and Snowboard Expo coming up on Friday, November 8th, 2013, through Sunday, November 10th, 2013.
